We knew we had to make a change, but cry it out wasn’t for us. We were adrift. Jess helped us develop a plan we were comfortable with that enabled us to make significant progress during the weeks we worked together. Her knowledge was invaluable.

“I really liked the whole process. With an older child [2.5 years old], the poor sleep habits are already so ingrained, it was not just an easy fix that I felt I could do by myself. I was really pleased with the gentle transition towards independent sleep that minimized child (and parent) distress, and [our son] responded immediately. I think the daily journal helped keep us on track and gave me confidence that we were doing the right thing, even if it was difficult for a short period of time. The entire family sleeps better now. I look forward to bedtime instead of dreading it. [Our son] is much calmer, more well rested, and the whole atmosphere at bedtime in our house is improved. [My husband] and I are so glad we did this!”

Happy Mother’s Day! 🙂 I cannot believe it has been two weeks either! But I will tell you it has been the best two week I have had in 7 months! I don’t even know where to start, other than saying THANK YOU! Your sense to reach out to me from my post on the Breastfeeding Support Group website is something that I will always be grateful for. Where do I begin….I will try to make this as short and sweet as I can 🙂

So…before we met you….we were running ourselves sick, literally my husband, “C” and me were sick all winter and I can almost attest most of it due to lack of sleep. We were feeding “C” around the clock, day and night. “C” would wake up  4-5 times a night and the only way to get him back to sleep would be to feed him. And sometimes that didn’t even help. We would spend a good hour feeding, rocking, and trying to console him while he cried each and every time he woke up. My husband and I were getting a max of 5 hours of sleep, which was broken. “C” was very needy, fussy and so weren’t my husband and I. Our marriage definitely went through some challenges over the past several months living on no sleep.

When we met you…you were so kind and caring and made us feel like we could accomplish the task at hand- MORE SLEEP!

Once we started our sleep plan you created for us we saw immediate results! By the 4-5th nights “C” was barely fussing at bedtime. He was waking up only twice, both times past his feeding cut off times-in which we were able to feed him and put him back down with no issues in 20 minutes or less. My husband and I have been able to get much needed restorative sleep and so has “C”. The results were completely amazing. It makes us speechless whenever we tell people how great “C” is doing. Over the past two weeks we have heard daycare say he is “Mr. Happy go Lucky.” A waitress at a restaurant say: “He deserves an award for being the best baby today.” We once dreaded the weekends, I actually use to become very anxious on Fridays because I knew we would have to handle a very fussy needy baby on no sleep, and usually going to work was easier. Super sad to say, I know. But the past two weeks we have been swimming twice, out to brunch, outside, walks etc. And he has been a true joy!

I went from dreading “C” awake times, to not wanting him to go to sleep! I don’t let him out of my sight when he is awake, I give him hundreds of kisses and dozens of hugs. I can’t get enough of him. I get very sad when he goes to bed for the night because I just want to be with him every moment, but I know if for the best. I will say the journey was not easy, and it is certainly not over. But holy moly…worth every penny and more!!

Thank you Jess for doing what you do…it changes peoples lives! I may sound over the top…but I am a mother who went from 4 hours of sleep to 9!! Sleep is an amazing thing!!!

From the bottom of our hearts- Thank you! (and I know we will be in touch….as “C” gets older/bumps in the road etc.)

“Thank you so much for helping us through this process! We are really delighted by the changes we have seen in our baby’s sleep patterns, especially overnight, and we know that with more practice the naps will fall into place, too. We were pretty amazed at how well she did overnight while away for Thanksgiving. Even in a different bed (pack n play) in a room with us instead of totally alone, we were able to hang onto enough of her routine that she got some really good sleep. It was so helpful getting regular feedback, suggestions, and encouragement! We have talked you up to many of our friends and family 🙂 Many thanks from two now much better rested Mamas!

“We owe you all of the thanks! We are in such a different place now than we were two weeks ago. Everything felt so desperate and it just feels so much more normal now. Thanks for helping put our life back together. ‘L’ did another 11.5 hours straight last night and took decent naps again today. We know there will still be ups and downs but he has definitely proven himself to be a ‘sleeper’ when were just so nervous that he never would be! Thanks for holding our hands and keeping us accountable. It was exactly what we needed this time around with #2.”

I cannot thank you enough for the time you have decided to my family and I. We are in a much better place than when my husband first emailed you.  What a blessing is has been having your advice, recommendations and support.  With “C” being our 3rd child we never imagined going through this, but who is to say what sleep habits even a 3rd child will have. We have learned so much valuable information about sleep, sleep habits and patterns. You also helped reaffirm that we are good parents, but just needed some guidance. I can honestly say that was the best money we have spent in a very long time 🙂 We have noticed positive changes in “C” since working with you.

Sleep is an amazing thing and we are so happy to all be getting it. We are so very grateful to have worked with you. We have spread the word to our family and friends about you. Although, we hope not to have to use you again since “C” will now be an amazing sleeper, its reassuring knowing you are there should we need you.

As first time parents, we used to dread bedtime. It would take almost an hour to get our daughter to sleep and 45 min later we would be back at it again for at least another hour or so. It was exhausting for us all. That is when we decided to contact The Baby Sleep Geek and we are so happy we did! We no longer have to struggle to get our daughter to bed and we have our nights back to relax a bit. Jessica is extremely helpful and will give you a detailed plan that suits the needs of your family. It’s so nice to be able to contact her with any questions you may have and she is very quick to respond. We highly recommend The Baby Sleep Geek!

Thank you so much for everything!!! This has been an amazing experience and it was actually a lot easier knowing it was you that was helping us through it! I would say the biggest improvement that I have seen is that he is able to fall asleep on his own and takes consistent naps which in turn has made a world of difference in his temperament! He is so happy now and his true personality has come out! I am so thankful that you were able to help us get him on a routine and schedule that works best for him and us !!!! I am not rushing to bed when he falls asleep now because i know that I will also get a good chunk of sleep!! It’s such a good feeling to be able to do something as simple as putting your son to bed. I love watching him sleep!!! He sprawls out in the crib and looks so comfy too!! You have been amazing throughout this whole process and were always there to answer my fifteen questions that I had daily lol I appreciate everything that you have done for us so much! It was actually a very fun and rewarding experience!! Yes stressful but well worth all the hard work!!! I feel like you have given me my sanity back!!!!!

-L.G., Mom to N.G.

Our son has always been a decent sleeper, but as he approached a year there were certain habits we couldn’t seem to break, and we had a sense that we all could and should be better rested. We had read lots of books about sleep and debated whether we really needed a sleep consultant, and we’re now so glad we decided to hire Jessica! She gave us the advice and support we needed to make some simple changes that have made a world of difference to our son’s (and our) sleep. She provides personal advice that is geared to your child and your particular situation, and combines her knowledge and experience with your family’s needs to make sure that you’re comfortable with the sleep plan. And most importantly, she provides very prompt and thorough advice as your family embarks on the new sleep plan — I think I contacted her almost daily with questions, and she always provided helpful answers and encouragement. I am happy to report that our son actually seems happy and comfortable when we put him in his crib, and we are all sleeping much better. I highly recommend Jessica — hiring her was one of the best decisions we have made!
